2.5 euro - FIFA World Cup Russia 2018
Series: Portugal - Commemorative 2.5 euro coins
In 2018, Russia hosts the final phase of the 21st Football World Cup, a competition organised by FIFA, gathering 32 nations from the five continents around in what is considered as the most popular sport in the world. Portugal’s first match during this final phase will be against Spain on 15 June, and the Portuguese have high hopes of the Quinas’ team, the current holders of the European title. To mark this major sports event, the Portuguese Mint has minted a commemorative collector coin with a face value of 2.5 euros, created by sculptor João Duarte.
